Photographer's Note

the mountains of slieve donard (northern ireland's highest point) and slieve commedagh provide the source for the annalong river which is formed on the slopes of their granite structures. the river flows through the mountains and down to the irish sea near annalong.

the valley through which it flows is a wide 'u' shaped valley constructed in the last ice age by the retreating glaciers. in the middle of summer the heather plants are in full bloom creating a wonderfully coloured carpet across the whole valley.
